Enjoy Fall for the Book Festival 2019

Fall for the Book is a non-profit literary arts organization based at George Mason University. Its flagship event is the Fall for the Book Festival, which will run from October 10-12, 2019 for its 21st annual festival. Each year, over 150 authors come to Mason and Northern Virginia for four days of readings, panels, and discussions.

Fall for the Book partners with many local organizations, including the City of Fairfax, the Fairfax County Public Library system and individual donors. This year Fall for the Book will welcome an esteemed lineup of poets, historians, novelists, memoirists, children’s authors, YA writers and more at George Mason University and locations around Northern Virginia.

Headliners include essayist and novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, novelist and YA author Rainbow Rowell, novelist Delia Owens, and true crime writer, David Grann. Other featured writers are David Wallace-Wells presenting the Beck Environmental Lecture, Governor Terry McAuliffe, Senator Janet Howell, novelist R.O. Kwon, true crime writer Sarah Weinman, and poets, Cole Swensen, Yona Harvey, Amaud Jamaul Johnson, and Brian Teare.

Literary Death Match, a fun, fast-paced literary game show, will close the festival on Saturday evening. Fall for the Book is also proud to host the second annual award ceremony for its post-publication book prize for immigrant writers: The Institute for Immigration Research New American Voices Award, judged by Reyna Grande, Alia Malek, and E.C. Osondu. The three finalists are Angie Kim, Eugenia Kim, and Melissa Rivero.
